This recipe is adapted from one in Simple and Delicious that used chicken instead of pork chops. The simple sauce and tender chops make a delicious dish. You can add the chili powder for a different taste.
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
- salt (to taste)
- fresh ground pepper (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce
- 1⁄2 cup chunky applesauce
- 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
- Sprinkle room-temperature chops with salt, pepper, and thyme.
- Place oil in heavy skillet and heat until medium hot.
- Brown chops slowly on both sides until golden brown.
- This should take about 5 minutes per side.
- Combine barbecue sauce, chunky applesauce, and chili powder (if desired.).
- Cover chops with sauce.
- Cover pan.
- Simmer chops til tender, about 10 minutes.
Easy and tasty. I have someone in my house that won't eat pork chops so I subbed chicken breasts. I also used peach chunky applesauce. It made a nice flavor.
